A bit about Jem

Jem Young is a (very) tall engineer at Netflix who loves dogs, reading, and clean code. He really enjoys working across the stack but his true passion lies in JavaScript and building a clean user experience.

He believes that empathy is the key to building an effective UI and when he’s not out riding his bike, you can find him hassling other engineers to write more tests.
